'The Kitchn' recently put together a recipe for easy puff pastry cheese straws. With the holiday season in full swing, many people are looking for recipes for appetizers that can be shared with friends and family. These crispy cheese straws are the perfect option for tiding guests over until dinner is served.
The recipe involves making homemade cheese straws out of puff pastry and grated cheese. To give the straws their signature shape, the puff pastry needs to be cut into thin layers and then twisted. Cheese is then sprinkled on top to give the pastry a delicious flavor. Hard cheeses such as Parmesan, Pecorino Romano and aged cheddar are recommended because they toast nicely when baked in the oven.
The puff pastry cheese straws pair perfectly with wine or beer, making them the ideal appetizer for any holiday party.
